Vimond Announce New Sydney Office

News Image
Vimond Media Solutions has announced the opening of its office in Sydney, following an expansion of business across the Asia Pacific (APAC) region.

Already serving a wide range of regional customers, Vimond is focusing its resources on supporting the continued growth of its clients and bringing its modular OTT solutions to more APAC content owners, telcos and broadcasters.

Vimond's momentum in the region has been building for several years, as it has provided the Vimond Platform to numerous customers, including Fox Sports, Optus in Australia, PLDT in the Philippines, and iflix in Malaysia. With Fox Sports, Vimond created a global streaming application for the Australian Football League (AFL), launching the service in time for the first-ever AFL Women's professional match in February 2017. In the previous year, Vimond collaborated with Australian telecommunications company Optus on a new streaming video service Optus Sport.

In 2015, Vimond provided managed services and operational expertise that enabled iflix to launch a SVOD service and become Southeast Asia's premier internet entertainment company.

Miguel Silva, CCO Vimond Media Solutions, said: "We are excited to deepen our roots in a region where OTT providers are looking for scalable, easy-to-use tools to continue growing. The modularity and multi-tenancy of our solutions are fundamental to helping companies deliver programs and events throughout this region, and around the world."

The Vimond Platform makes it easy to ingest content from different sources and formats, and to distribute it to different channels. Those characteristics make the Vimond Platform powerful when used for sports and global events.

Developed in close collaboration with customers, and in some cases hundreds of hours of workflow observation, Vimond software is designed to simplify life for the OTT operator. The curation module, for example, allows service managers and editors to easily drag and drop content that they want to feature in end-user portals.

Many APAC customers also appreciate the Vimond Rights Manager, which organizes the cumbersome and fragmented domain of contracts management into a tightly integrated, automated workflow.

The leading telecommunications and internet service provider in the Philippines, PLDT, is also the first Vimond customer to use the new Live Channel Planner, a solution for scheduling and monitoring a large number of live channels for global customers.

Oscar Gutierrez, VP Business Development, Vimond Media Solutions, said: "In terms of users and population, the Asia-Pacific market is extremely large, and our clients are addressing and targeting a huge number of OTT consumers. This gives us the opportunity of developing scalable solutions that are, at the same time, highly personalized both for different customers (iflix, Optus, FOX SPORTS Australia or PLDT) and for their heterogeneous markets.".

With its own origin in broadcasting, Vimond is dedicated to remaining close to customers and believes its Sydney office already has enhanced its cooperation with regional broadcasters and other OTT providers. Situated in heart of downtown Sydney, within a fifteen-minute walk of the city's iconic Opera House, the office is now staffed with six full-time employees. Vimond is continuing to hire within Australia.
